Pay & Night Tube Dispute: Acas Update

LUL Pay and Night Tube Negotiaions ACAS update from Regional Organiser John Leach

Dear RMT Members

Today myself and senior RMT reps from all LUL grades attended exploratory talks at ACAS to discuss the above matter. All the unions made the same point that LUL must abandon its reckless decision to break our current arrangements , and that the management must agree to negotiate changes.

At present LUL have referred rostering for night tube to local level , and this must be withdrawn. It is essential that we agree a package of remuneration ,reward and safety arrangements for everyone before that can happen.

Also LUL must abide our current agreements - something that their current implementation plan is in breach of.

All the unions are in dispute and we are all balloting our members for strike action to defend your rights, agreements, safety and a proper reward for night tube and also a decent pay rise.

We have agreed to return to a full day of talks next monday 8th June, and I will report back after that.
